EVGA Z270 Classified K - Back to top


Recommended - HardwareAsylum

"The UEFI layout is quite good and displays exactly what you need to see. This is an important feature given that many manufacturers tend to overcomplicate the interface in an attempt to show "everything" or do the opposite and hide everything in a list of complex menus. The EVGA UEFI is very straight forward showing you the current state of your system while giving you appropriate menus to make adjustments."

Approved - Overclockers

"The Z270 Classified is loaded with features, pushes the limits very well, and is quite aesthetically pleasing."

Editor's Choice Award - PC Perspective

"The overall performance of the new Supernova 850W G3 power supply was phenomenal."

EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3 Power Supply - Back to top


Recommended - JonnyGURU

"We have here another amazing unit from EVGA, it comes as no surprise to me to say."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING iCX - Back to top

PC World

"The EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2’s robust iCX cooling solution keeps the GPU a whopping 15 degrees Celsius cooler than the Founders Edition under load, and it stays far quieter while doing so."

"What I didn’t expect was that it would also drop the temperatures a mean of six degrees and a peak of 18! iCX is no gimmick. Given a choice between the SC2 and another air-cooled 1080 at these speeds, it’s a no brainer: the SC2 wins. If you’re willing to overclock yourself, it’s a hands-down winner across the board."
Tweak Town


"EVGA is all class with the GTX 1080 SC2 iCX, with a major upgrade in its cooling technology with iCX. The best dual-slot GeForce GTX 1080 money can buy, with 2.2GHz GPU overclocking potential and silent gaming, EVGA hits yet another home run."

- PCWorld

"Watching how the iCX technology affected the GTX 1080 Superclocked 2 as it hummed along in The Division wasn’t it just insightful, it was fun—and I dig how EVGA managed to use RGB lighting for a practical purpose rather than simple aesthetics."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 GAMING iCX - Back to top

PC Perspective

- PC Perspective

"The new EVGA iCX Technology is impressive and will likely serve as a roadmap for future GPU development from competing AICs as well as reference designs coming from both NVIDIA and AMD."

Approved - Overclockers.com

"With it comes those 11 total patents, newly designed heatsink allowing for better integration to both the card and system, airflow penetration/efficiency of the cooler, thermally functional base and back plates, display LEDs for each zone, additional temperature sensors and MCUs, and an update to the Precision XOC software."

Editor's Choice Award - Hot Hardware

"The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 card with iCX we tested is our favorite GTX 1080 yet."

Quality Build - GamersNexus

"As for designing a new cooler that’s got unique functionality, we’ll say job well done to EVGA. The fuse, cooling apparatus, and thermistors are exactly what we want to see on video cards moving forward."

- JayZ2Cents

"The temperatures you saw were all with the factory fan curve and very very respectable, and even with a 2088 overclock the you didnt see any additional heat from the VRM because the VRM fan is speeding up to keep that temp down."

- BitWit

"EVGAs new iCX Technology is a huge step in the right direction, I think all the thought and engineering that went into this are all good concepts and good ideas that will drive the industry forward as a whole."

"EVGA did have some FLIR cameras there for actual visual reference of thermal load, they had an FTW card next to an FTW2 card running the same frequency, same test, and you could see visually the FTW2 cards are staying cooler."

- Hexus

"The energy-efficient nature of the 10-series GPUs means that, sometimes, the hottest-running components are memory and power regulation. So having some reporting on them makes implicit sense."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 GAMING iCX - Back to top

"As of this article it is by far the most advanced cooling solution available for any mainstream graphics card and the 11 patents associated with iCX Technology really seal the deal."

Golden Bear Award - Bjorn3d

"We have long desired more than a generic core temperature reading and EVGA delivered monitoring in spades. Now with a glance at EVGA Precision XOC we can tell if it’s the Core, VRM’s or Memory that are running hot which enhances OCing and gives “Peace of Mind Gaming” it’s true definition."

"So how does this relate to real world performance? Do the redesigned fins, and the little pins, and the fins spinning at different speeds really make an improvement? Yeah, it does. While overclocked 115 on the GPU and 300 on the memory, looping unigine heaven for about half an hour, temps stabilized at about 52 degrees Celsius, and other tests stabilized around 64c, the ACX card averaged about 70c with the same overclock applied."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING - Back to top

Hot Hardware

Recommended - Hot Hardware

"As much as we love the biggest, baddest graphics cards around here, there's something about high-performance, small form factor products that's just as cool. The 6GB EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming that we tested is a $249 graphics card with enough muscle to churn through most games at 1440P or lower resolutions, in a form factor and power envelope fit for a mini-ITX gaming build"

EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC GAMING ACX 3.0 - Back to top


- Fanbolt

"Overall, for $129, I appreciate what the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC offers for someone who wants to give their PC a little kick to enjoy many of the best and most popular games. I also like that it doesn’t require any connection to the power supply, making it very easy to plug in and start playing for someone who may not be the most comfortable with the insides of a computer. It’s a wonderful starter card to feed the Overwatch addiction or manage the backlog of games from the recent Steam sale."

EVGA CLC 280 Liquid CPU Cooler - Back to top


- GamersNexus

"EVGA’s first attempt at an AIO is remarkably strong; they’ve come out swinging with the CLC series, outranking NZXT in noise levels just barely, and performing with a slight advantage in some cooling tests."

- JayZ2Cents

"In GTA5 which is a CPU heavy game, with all the draw distance maxed out the temps stayed well within check. Upper 40s package temp, and the cores in low to mid 40's..."

Editor's Choice Award - BabelTech

"EVGA’s 280 CLC is an excellent no-compromise all-in-one quiet cooler for a reasonable price considering its build, ease of installation, and all-inclusive package. It is well-deserving of our “Editor’s Choice” award and it easily cools our own overclocked hot-running Skylake i7-6700K to 4.7GHz. Highly recommended!"
